Here is the synopsis for “Contraband”:

Mark Wahlberg leads the cast of “Contraband”: a white-knuckle action/thriller about a man trying to stay out of a world he worked hard to leave behind and the family he’ll do anything to protect. Set in New Orleans, the film explores the cutthroat underground world of international smuggling. It’s full of desperate criminals, corrupt officials, high stakes and big payoffs. Loyalty rarely exists and death is one wrong turn away.

Chris Farraday (Wahlberg) long ago abandoned his life of crime, but after his brother-in-law, Andy (Caleb Landry Jones), botches a drug deal for his ruthless boss, Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), Chris is forced back into doing what he does best – running contraband – to settle Andy’s debt. Chris is a legendary smuggler and quickly assembles a crew with the help of his best friend, Sebastian (Ben Foster), to head to Panama and return with millions in counterfeit bills.

Things quickly fall apart, and with only hours to reach the cash, Chris must use his rusty skills to successfully navigate a treacherous criminal network of brutal drug lords, cops and hit men before his wife, Kate (Kate Beckinsale), and sons become their target.

The movie trailer for “Contraband” can be watched now below.

Protect the ones you love

There is nothing I wouldn’t do to protect my family. I would do anything for them no matter what and no matter what it costs to make sure they are all safe, happy healthy and alive. We are all very protective of one another, always have been and always will be!

Family

One believes that they would be willing to do anything to protect their family in times of trouble, going as far as taking another life to protect a loved one may be crossing the line. The best thing you can do for your family is to keep anything dangerous away from them from the very beginning,so if your lifestyle prior to having a family is dangerous it is time to walk away from those events, family is a blessed gift and should be more important than anything else.

  • The King of Comedy

    Something always felt a bit out of place for me in Martin Scorsese’s brilliant “The King of Comedy”, just released on Blu-ray for the first time. I couldn’t put my finger on it but chalked it up to it being thematically ahead of its time in its investigation of the cult of personality that defines modern entertainment.

  • 47 Ronin with Keanu Reeves

    CHICAGO – If you’ve ever wondered what the difference is between a director and a producer, let “47 Ronin” explain how the hierarchy of creativity hinders the evolution of even the most straightforward-sounding pitches. “47 Ronin” is the type of samurai movie set in Japan that features native actors speaking only English, while Keanu Reeves stars as an outsider clearly plunked into the picture for stateside star power.
